Lineage 1000 achieves steep approach certification
The Embraer Lineage 1000 has received its steep approach certification of 5.5 degrees from ANAC – Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil and the EASA – European Aviation Safety Agency.
“This is yet another milestone in the development of the industry’s most versatile, ultra-large jet,” said Ernest Edwards, president, Embraer Executive Jets. “With the steep-approach certification, the Lineage 1000 will be able to access airports in many parts of the world where steeper approach angles are required owing to noise or terrain restrictions. This is key to operations at London City Airport and steep-approach certification increases the versatility, as well as, the value of this aircraft significantly. The capability at London City affords customers non-stop service from to Moscow, Istanbul, Cairo, Canary Islands and Reykjavik or, one stop to Los Angeles, Tokyo and Hong Kong. ”
